Revolution Live, Ft. Lauderdale- The H.E.L.P Event (Haitian Extension of Love and Peace) is fundraiser directly benefitting Haiti.

For $15 in advance or $20 at the door you can enjoy a night of music, drinks and a grand prize raffle. With admission you will receive one free beer provided by Fresh Beer.

All proceeds are to be distributed through two very different but equally important relief efforts.

The first is http://www.PlantingPeace.org an organization founded by a close friend of Haiti named Aaron Jackson. Aaron runs a few orphanages in Haiti and he needs assistance fortifying the actual structures that the Children sleep in due to damage sustained in the recent Earthquake. Furthermore, the earthquake has orphaned even more children now and he needs proper supplies and medical resources to compensate for this.

The second is a group that is part of the BURNING MAN project called http://burnerswithoutborders.org . They are active in many different capacities of humanitarianism, but recently have been bringing much needed supplies such as water, food, and medical supplies to the 2010 earthquake victims of Haiti.
